MotoA racer Jason Aguilar was mortally injured in a mountain bike crash Saturday and is not expected to survive.
His parents released this statement:
Jason Aguilar, our son, professional MotoAmerica road racer, 2017 Superstock 600 Champion, avid mountain biker, and friend to many, had a horrible crash Saturday morning in Laguna on his mountain bike. His friends, Alex and Anthony, acted quickly to get him airlifted to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo where he was rushed into surgery to relieve bleeding in his brain. While the surgery was successful in stopping the bleeding, he went without oxygen to his brain for too long before the surgery. As a result of the lack of oxygen, he suffered catastrophic brain damage that is irreversible. Jason is an organ donor, so the hospital is making arrangements for donation of his organs, and for recipients of those organs. Once that is complete, Jason will be taken off life support. We hope that Jason will live on in your memories and ours, and that the donation of his organs will allow his memory to live on in others.
